This weekend was glorious. Danita Kilcullen and Jack Gillies of Tea Party Fort Lauderdale invited me to speak to their dynamic organization this past Saturday. The event sold out, and so many notables and great patriots were in attendance.
Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of fallen Navy Seal Aaron Vaughn, were there. Karen and Billy were part of the press conference last month that revealed that military brass invited a Muslim cleric to their children’s funeral in 2011 — an imam who "damned to hell" our fallen soldiers. Video here.
NAVY SEAL TEAM VI FAMILIES TO REVEAL GOVERNMENT’S CULPABILITY IN DEATH OF THEIR SONS IN FATAL HELICOPTER CRASH IN AFGHANISTAN FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL RAID ON BIN LADEN’S COMPOUND
- Obama and Joe Biden improperly revealed the identities of the Navy SEALs who were on the mission to assassinate Osama bin Laden, thereby putting “a target” on the backs of the SEALs.
- The Chinook helicopter was “inadequate,” as was its pilot.
- When the Chinook was attacked by the Taliban, our side “couldn’t return fire” and was “handcuffed.”
- At the funeral in Bagram Airfield in Kabul, Afghanistan, for our servicemen, Jesus’ name couldn’t be mentioned but instead an imam prayed.
The Vaughns have started a remarkable organization for children who lost their fathers in the war, Operation 300. It is a non-profit foundation designed to create a week-long experience for children who have lost their fathers as a result of service to our country. The camp provides these childen with the opportunity to participate in activities that embody the spirit of adventure that characterized the lives of their absent fathers, while fostering a culture of courage, strength, freedom, endurance, honor and godly morality embodied by fearless patriots throughout the history of our American Republic.

The event was powerful. It followed the Florida premiere of Hating Breitbart, where I introduced the film maker, Andrew Marcus (below). Maura Flynn, the film's producer, is to his right.
Also in attendance was South Florida talk show favorite Joyce Kaufman, Doug Giles and his daughters, "Clapper Memo" author Bob McCarty, Band of Mothers leader Bev Perlson, J Mark Campbell, Tom Trento, Jack Oliver, and so many others. Special mention to Jeannie Morris -- SIOA Florida -- who helps me enormously.
I will post the video if someone uploads it. I was blown away when two signs of my Atlas banner were auctioned off. Close to $3,000 was raised for our ad campaigns. When Big Fur Hat of IOTW suggested it, I laughed. It was his idea of auction off a signed Atlas banner. And he was right. New ads go up in San Francisco this week, thanks to these wonderful people. Special props to J. Mark Campbell for raising the bidding -- it was a brilliant moment.
